This message is for users who registered for using the web conferencing service offered by ITS (available at http://webconf.hku.hk).
ITS will upgrade the existing Adobe Connect from version 7.0 to 9.0 on June 23, 2013 (Sunday). To facilitate the upgrade, the web conferencing service will be suspended as follows:
Date: June 23, 2013 (Sunday)
Time: 9:00am to 6:00pm
After the upgrade on June 23, 2013, a new URL will be used. To access the meeting hosts administration page, please use the URL http://webconf.hku.hk. For meetings, please broadcast the meeting in the format of URL http://webconf.hku.hk/<meeting URL>. (The webpage will be redirected to a HTTPS secure page automatically.)
As all user accounts and meeting recordings will be migrated to the new version, there is no change to you except a new URL.
The user interface of Adobe Connect 9.0 is similar to 7.0. Please continue using the SAME username and password to access the web conferencing system.
The new Adobe Connect 9.0 supports a list of advance features including
- Support access from mobile devices using the Adobe Connect Mobile apps
- Increase in event capacity
- Pause and resume recordings during live sessions
- Automatic browser plug-in installation
